Determining Needs vs. Wants : Needs are very basic, and should be easy to recognize. Strip your existence down, and you will see that what you need is not very complicated. Make them easy to recognize so you will be able to make in the moment decisions about your needs.
Realizing Your Own Realistic Needs : Now think about what you really want out of life. Consider how you want to be remembered after you are gone. Now compare those things with your needs and wants. Can you strike a compromise between how you want to live and those things you desire? This is a crucial step towards finding balance in your life.
Balancing Your Needs With Your Wants : This is an important concept to keep in mind as you continue your journey to self-improvement. Wants, or desires, are things we would like to have but they do not sustain us. When you are prioritizing your life, first give your attention to those things that ensure your existence, your happiness, and your well-being.
